Acarbose treatment of postprandial hypoglycemia in children after Nissen fundoplication.J Pediatr. 2001 Dec; 139(6):877-9.JPed
Dumping syndrome and postprandial hypoglycemia have been reported after Nissen fundoplication. The physiopathologic mechanisms are poorly understood and a variety of therapies have failed to control the hypoglycemia in these patients. We report a series of 6 infants with postprandial hypoglycemia after Nissen fundoplication who were treated successfully with acarbose.
